Flight remains one of man's greatest dreams, something we have only mastered through leaps of technology and by strapping ourselves into machines that allow us to soar... Something that Nature achieved seemingly effortlessly in countless animal species from vastly different families. Our embroidered series »Wings« takes us on a journey across the animal kingdom to explore their own »technology« that allows them to fly. The embroidered art pieces can be purchased as a single piece of 40 x 40 cm (15,7 x 15,7 in), but if you wish to furnish your office, home or business with several, the series is available as a full set of 8 embroidered pieces.
The eagle has always sparked our imagination and our desire for flight. The smooth soaring of this mighty bird above the clouds is a symbol of freedom, and it was by studying the eagle's wings that humans have been able to understand the basic mechanics of flight, and replicate them with great success in our own flying machines. But with all our knowledge and understanding, the eagle still remains the true king of the air, flying with ease, reminding us that nature has been perfecting the wing for millions of years, while our attempts at flight are only a century old.
Spark your own desire to take flight with this beautiful series of embroidered art.
